Hahaha as much as things change, things remain the same.

I spend a little too much time at the Funhouse still, of course you guys probably had the Original Sins and what not, or was it still a comedy club?

The Funhouse is quite beneath the Lehigh student's these days... that scene it's very much like an episode of The Hills but in South Bethlehem, and with North Jersey accents. Too bad really... the sense of entitlement on most of these young people is pretty disgusting.

The Goose is still the best deal in town for lunch.

DSO played Zoellner Arts Center during MusikFest.

Food Lane is still a grocery store, just a different and the punker house at the end of Montclair burned down some years ago.

The Bethlehem Steel grounds are being converted into a casino, hotel, and all kinds of other stuff. And the Smithsonian is renovating the blast furnace stacks to be a museum.

So yea...

I recall seing Stevie Ray Vaughan and Aerosmith at Stabler while I was there, in addition to a free concert by the Allman Bros. Was just when they had "re-united" and were starting to record again somewhere around 1986. Bethlehem was also a perfect staging place for trips to Brendan Byrne and Philly for shows. Good times. Real good times.

Left before the Zoellner opened. From what I've heard it's pretty nice.

Indeed. That's my primary reason for liking this area - great proximity to just about everything, and not terribly expensive.

Play It Again Records - remember that one? Used to work there too.

Holy crap, the memories are starting to flood back. That may or may not be a good thing. Well, I suppose it's good that I still HAVE memories.

Really terrific show....one of my top 3 all time for "needs a better source", but I agree with SDH the Miller SBD is a slight tick above the others.

Scarlet>Fire fans be prepared for an amazingly twisty-turny transition journey & a scintillating Fire, minus the Jerry F-ups in verse 1.
